    I'm impressed with Eli, the way he rode at the MEC, and now here. He looks ready for the big bike.

    Good job GuyB and good job Tyler V, in the 250's. Nice to see Tyler's smiling face on the podium.

    Unc, he really turned things around from practice, where he struggled with the tacky racing surface and ruts. He looked like a completely different guy.

    I heard his suspension was set up for a 300lb man in the beginning and they got it a lot better after practice. Tyler is scheduled to do arenacross and I would expect to see him in a few supercrosses, but i know he wants to be ready for
    the big stage before he takes that plunge. We are so proud of his determination after years of injuries and disappointment. Tyler is a awesome young man and we are behind him 100%.

    Any word on how he is after his Saturday night crash? He and Dan were gone before I got back to the pits.
